Non-partisan voter registration organization Voto Latino, their celebrity coalition, elected officials and media will come together for an intimate celebration to commemorate President Obama’s Inauguration and to honor Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis on January 20th.

Confirmed hosts include Voto Latino Chair Rosario Dawson, 2012 Co-Chair Wilmer Valderrama, President Maria Teresa Kumar, and Vice-Chair Brandon Hernandez.  Other guests include Russell Simmons, Congressman Xavier Becerra and more.

The event is both a celebration of the Inauguration and of the organization’s achievements over the past year. American Latinos played an integral part in the 2012 elections, representing a record setting 10% of voters. Through the help of Voto Latino’s efforts, over 100,000 new voters were registered in time for Election Day.
